The Black Rose Shrimp is a captivating and highly sought-after freshwater shrimp species prized for its striking black coloration and unique appearance. Originating from the freshwater streams and rivers of Southeast Asia, particularly Taiwan, this shrimp has become a popular choice for dedicated shrimp enthusiasts and aquarists seeking to add elegance to their aquariums. Here is a detailed description of the Black Rose Shrimp:


  1. Size: Black Rose Shrimp are relatively small and typically reach a size of about 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3.8 centimeters) when fully grown.
  2. Body Shape: They have a graceful and elongated body with a slightly curved back. Their slender appearance is accentuated by their relatively long rostrum (nose) and prominent antennae.
  3. Coloration: The most striking feature of Black Rose Shrimp is their deep, jet-black coloration. Their entire body, including the carapace, legs, and antennae, is black, giving them a striking and elegant appearance. In some specimens, you may observe hints of deep red or dark brown coloration, especially on the legs and antennae.


  1. Peaceful Nature: Black Rose Shrimp are known for their peaceful and non-aggressive temperament. They are excellent additions to community aquariums and can coexist with other peaceful fish and invertebrate species.
  2. Social Behavior: These shrimp are social by nature and thrive when kept in groups. A group of Black Rose Shrimp can display fascinating social interactions and foraging behaviors.


  1. Origin: Black Rose Shrimp originate from Taiwan, where they inhabit freshwater streams and rivers with slow to moderate water flow and densely vegetated areas.
  2. Aquarium Setup: To replicate their natural habitat, provide an aquarium with plenty of live or artificial plants, driftwood, and hiding spots. Maintain water conditions with a temperature range of 68-78°F (20-26°C), a pH level between 6.0 and 7.5, and very soft to moderately hard water.


  1. Scavengers: Black Rose Shrimp are scavengers and primarily feed on detritus, algae, and microorganisms in the aquarium. They can be supplemented with high-quality shrimp pellets, algae wafers, and occasional live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp or daphnia to ensure their nutritional needs are met.


  1. Reproduction: Black Rose Shrimp reproduce via internal fertilization and give birth to live, miniature versions of themselves. When conditions are favorable, they can reproduce prolifically in a well-maintained aquarium.
